Levi Colwill’s chances of joining Liverpool have improved as the club has dropped interest in the alternative option

The possibility of Liverpool securing the signing of Levi Colwill has grown following a significant transfer decision made by the club.

Colwill, who has progressed through the ranks at Chelsea, has spent the last two seasons on loan to aid his development, most recently at Brighton.

His impressive performances during his loan spell on the south coast have significantly raised his profile, and his reputation has been further bolstered by England’s Under-21 team’s success in the European Championship.

Although Chelsea is keen to retain Colwill for the upcoming season, the 20-year-old has drawn interest from Liverpool, who are actively seeking a left-sided center-back. Brighton has also shown interest in the defender, with a previous bid being rejected.

Given that Liverpool has reportedly ended their pursuit of their primary alternative to Colwill, the chances of the club making a bid for the young center-back have now increased, signaling their intent to strengthen their defensive options.

Colwill to Liverpool?

According toThis Is Anfield, Liverpool have no plans to rival Tottenham for the signature of Wolfsburg defender Micky van de Ven.

According to the publication, there are no current plans for Liverpool to make a move for Van de Ven in the current transfer window.

The club’s attention has reportedly shifted to pursuing other players instead.

It seems that Liverpool’s sole confirmed target for a left-sided center-back is Levi Colwill, as they are not interested in signing Van de Ven.

However, it is expected that Chelsea would put up a fight to keep Colwill at the club this summer, considering his potential and their own ambitions.

If Liverpool wants to secure his signing, they may need to provide assurances of regular first-team opportunities for the young player.

Colwill himself has expressed his ambitions of earning an England national team call-up, highlighting his aspirations for the future.

He said, via theMirror: “We’re all pushing and knocking on the door. Everyone has to pay attention to every player here. I feel like this team we had was more than just individuals. In the past England might have lacked that. We’ve always had great players but I think this team is so much different. I love this team.

“I’ll speak to my family, speak to everyone I need to and make a decision. I’ve got to play at the end of the day, to hopefully get there and go to the next (senior) camp.

“But if I’m here, I’ll still be happy. You’ve always got to be happy when you’re picked for any England age group. It’s an honour.”
